I have three corduroy suits actually: brown from Burberry, red from Paul Smith and a salmon pink three-piece number that Timothy Everest did for Dormeuil when he was their creative director. Â Naturally, I wear the red and pink ones sparingly, but wear the brown one constantly in the winter and late fall. Â I find it to be wonderfully versatile and extremely comfortable -- and I'm not even crazy about the cut of that Â particular suit. Â It dresses up and down and distinguishes itself from everything around it. Â It's one of those pieces that can get compliments from ladies (because it's sharp and different) and men (because it's casual and not pretentious). Â The unfortunate part is that the fabric stretches and wears quickly, but that you probably know. I really like the cut of the Paul Smith one. Â I don't know who the maker is, but it's from Belgium. Â It has enough construction to it to keep it from looking like a potato sack and yet still be comfortable. Â Can't say I've really looked as to what's coming in in this year's autumn collections to know who is making a good one. Â In the past few years I've seen decent looking cord suits from Helmut Lang, Etro and APC (who's moved into only doing street clothes like sweatsuits). Â Cordings of Piccadilly is supposed to do a nice one, but that doesn't do Americans much good. Â Just keep your eyes open and if I run across a sharp looking one, I'll drop a line.
